Craig & Habgood star at Crystal Bay


PSC Golf Bunker Boys at The Ranch

Monday, Feb. 22, Crystal Bay – Medal

A quick trip down Route 7 on this clear blue skied day to a perennial favorite and despite it being a medal round we had a good turnout of 27 players.  The course was, as always, in top notch condition with fast greens.

Medal brings out the best in a golfer so not surprisingly Colin Craig emerged as winner of the A flight with a net 70, and this was equaled by Peter Habgood in the B flight and these were the only two players to beat their handicaps.

A Flight

1st Colin Craig net 70

2nd Bob Catlow net 74

3rd Eddie Graham net 74

B Flight

1st Peter Habgood net 70

2nd Neil Carter net 74

3rd Arthur Rowley net 75

Near Pins: Ronnie Melvin, Colin Greg, Eddie Graham, Ronnie Melvin

Wednesday, Feb. 24, Treasure Hill (yellow tees) – Stableford

They are still working on the 331 so it was a slowish trip up to Treasure Hill where despite 3 groups who booked to play, there we were no hold-ups and there were more than enough caddies and good working golf buggies for everyone.  Top marks to the admin at the course.

Once again there were only two players who equaled or beat their handicaps so the course played harder than it looked.

Tony Scrambler was heard to enquire as to where Pattaya Mail had found the published picture of him as it made him look so young that nobody recognised that it was him.

A Flight

1st Geoff Parker (15) 36pts

2nd Tony Scrambler (13) 34pts

3rd Mark Stanley (8) 33pts

B Flight

1st Steve Durey (19) 37pts

2nd Les Burns (33) 33pts

3rd Phil Moore (18) 32pts

Near Pins: Phil Moore, Tony Scrambler, Keiichi Kasami, Ken Davidson.

Friday, Feb. 26, Mt. Shadow (blue tees) – Stableford

It was a great day for golf at the ever-popular Mountain Shadow Golf Club: perfect weather, the course in great shape, and 35 of our finest roaring to get on with it.  As per our last few visits, there was a bit of a delay at the starters’ gate, but not a major problem.

Our B-flight guys were on top of their game with all three pay positions playing to or bettering their handicaps, and a good day overall as the average stableford score was a very respectful 33.

Your scribe had that frisson moment watching Arthur Rowley’s ball land and roll toward the cup on the par-3 127-yard 5th hole.  It was looking like a for sure hole-in-one but came to rest some twenty inches past the cup.  Arthur was all smiles walking on the green to mark his ball; then proceeded to yip the putt and take a par.  Ouch!

A Flight

1st Mark Stanley (8) 37pts

2nd Tony Scambler (13) 36pts

3rd Colin Greig (10) 31pts

B Flight

1st Tore Eliasson (22) 38pts

2nd Ken Davidson (24) 36pts

3rd Tim Winder (25) 36pts

Near Pins: Keiichi Kasami, Neil Jones, David Nichools, Arthur Rowley.
